Andis Burkevics, a senior associate, has been practising law since 1999.
Andis joined the firm in 2005. His key areas of specialisation are employment law and personal data protection law. With his broad experience in employment law-related cases including litigation, Andis advises on personal data protection, workplace environment and safety requirements issues, drafts employment contracts and management agreements, assists in employment termination cases and represents clients in employment law-related negotiations (including with employee-authorised representatives and trade unions) and disputes.
